This year, the secret to a great summer hairstyle is casual, but polished. As far as texture goes, both straight and wavy hairstyles meet summer standards. Waves are always very summery. Make this year’s trendy hairstyle waves smooth for a more times-relevant look. Flat iron your hair first to smooth it out but leave some volume at the roots. CHI flat irons are top quality hairstyling tools that can be found at affordable prices.

Classic hair buns are being worn whether you’re dressing up or dressing down. Wear the modern hairstyle at a medium height right behind your head or super high. Add an extra trendy touch by incorporating a black headband into the mix.

Asymmetrical updos, such as the messy side braid, are extremely popular this summer. These kinds of modern hairstyles combine casual with elegant, so well.
As a parting thought, don’t make your updo too perfect; leave out a few loose strands. Also, vintage-looking accessories are a great finishing touch to soften your look.

I love summer. All year long, I wait for summer to arrive so I can enjoy the refreshing beach and get a nice, healthy glow. I only ever wish that I can find a way to look good while I’m at the beach. No, I’m not talking about how fit my body may or may not be (though I’d like to know the easy shortcut to that, too). Sometimes, I see people that look great after a day at the beach. Their beach hair looks sexy and their un-made-up face looks fresh and healthy. I can’t speak for everyone – some of those people may be blessed with hair and skin that look good in any condition. I, on the other hand, need some assistance from some man-made products.
For your face, apply Murad Correcting Moisturizer. The tinted moisturizer soothes skin and evens out blotchy skin tone while it protects you from sun damage with SPF 15. It will look like your bare skin, only with a more balanced skin tone.
For your hair, apply Macadamia Natural Oil Nourish Leave-In Cream to wet hair after you are done with your swimming. The leave-in cream tames and softens your hair while it protects it from UV rays. If you STILL don’t feel like your hair can be trusted to look good, set it in a messy side braid AFTER you’ve applied the Macadamia Natural Oil Nourish Leave-In Cream and call it a day.
Then, go on to enjoy that I-look-good-without-trying look.
